to michelle obama. bill clinton, nothing beats having a former president to affirm you, especially a guy like bill clinton who's a walking advertisement for a strong economy. >> why is he doing it? >> you know, i think part of it is that his legacy is, in a sense, tied to barack obama's. a lot of what barack obama is saying is let's go back to the clinton rates on taxes. there's an affirmation on him getting reelected. and then, of course, they did bring their two sort of political power house families together with the hiring of hillary clinton. into the cabinet of barack obama. if you want to take the most cynical view of it, if hillary clinton wants to run in 2016, what better way to serve that up and set that up. >> we've got some huge loyalty. some markers are going to be able to be able to be called in on this deal. look, i think president clinton not only has he done the job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for on the downed ballot is just amazing. do you think he can swing some races. >> i think absolutely. if you look at where i'm seeing him pop it into my inbox. you

, a picture of him and michelle obama hugging saying four more years and then again this personal tweet signed by the president saying as you say "we're all in this together. that's how we campaigned and that's who we are. thank you, signed b.o., barack obama, it is electric here at campaign headquarters in chicago. they are crying tears but different from the tears of the romney tears hq. people hugging each other, very excited. there was a lot of concern that the economic problems that the country was having and the difficulties president obama was having with certain demographic groups was going to mean this would be a very long night. it turns out not so long after all. this is the third president in a row who has been re-elected and he did it using the same strategy of the previous president, george w. bush, the president who he blames for so many of the troubles that still are a problem for him today, problems for the american people today, he had a -- george w. bush fought for re-election even though the public was ambivalent about him because of the war in iraq. he did it by making the
, with some of the emotion as both candidates were wrapping up those speeches last night. michelle obama, i thought, as well, was, was emotional, more emotional certainly than i've heard her before, when she was talking to the crowd. let's play a little bit of that. >>> the auto industry was in crisis. this economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. and a lot of folks were wondering whether we were headed for another great depression. do you hear me? that's what people were worrying about. and that is what barack faced on day one as president of the united states. >> how emotional has this last tour for the president and michelle obama been? >> it's been very emotional. and last night, when i watched some of that i found myself walking away from the television, i know michelle obama's family very well. her family roots, on her father's side, or right here in south carolina and georgetown county, which was a part of my congressional district, so i understand that emotion ap. so those emotions, you get wrapped up here and then you lay your heart out, and you know that you were not dealt a hand
is what our coverage looks like. michelle obama is campaigning in petersburg, virginia, today at virginia state university. tonight mitt romney and paul ryan will be joined by their wives on the campaign trail, in westchester, ohio. also joining them is condoleezza rice and senator john mccain. that is at 7:30 on c-span. the amount we have to create an environment that our small businesses can thrive. when we look at the uniqueness on the border different from the reform metered -- needed, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we have a work force problem because of our immigration system is broken. we cannot get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to commerce. we have to provide a workforce that can move back and forth easily, and now we cannot do that because of the impediments that are there by not having an effective immigration policy. that becomes an economic issue. >> some of the issues have to do with what was raised here with regard to be near the border, seasonal work that comes on, and being susceptible to a national trend when it comes to the
or romney? >> i would say from a military's perspective. i'm a spouse, michelle obama has done great things for military families. >> reporter: romney has promised to reduce the federal work force by 10%, cutting two jobs for every one that's filled. who's better romney or obama for fedel workers? >> it's a question contains a logical fallacy. i'm not going to answer that. >> i'd have to say obama might be the better. >> reporter: because? >> it seems romney might want to slash some jobs and cut unnecessary spending. >> reporter: romney would eliminate some departments and cap government spending at 20% without cutting defense spending. >> i disagree with that. he's going to take a beat ax and not think about it. >> romney wants to lay us off and obama just froze our salaries so i guess between the two, it'd be obama. >> reporter: so obviously it's clear federal and local workers we talked to feel they have more job security under barack obama if re-elected. of course this doesn't apply to the thousands of people who are political appointees. they will be packing should mitt romney win this
the president's ground game one day out. first lady michelle obama is rallying supporters in north carolina and florida, while ann romney will join her husband at tonight's rally in new hampshire. be sure to check out our "news nation" tumblr page. you'll find behind the scene pictures this election day eve at newsnation.tumblr.com. my insurance rates are probably gonna double. but, dad, you've got... [ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? >>> so when digging through our final nbc/"wall street journal" poll before the election, our first read team noticed some familiar numbers. for one, the president is exactly where george w. bush was at this point in the national race. both incumbents at 48% and the challengers at 47%. bush was at 49% at the time in 2008. obviously, all good news for president obama. wrong year. let's go to mark murray to discuss trends. we have to talk about the breaking news. governor romney going to cleveland, ohio, pittsbur
, it's gametime. we don't get another chance tomorrow. >> and michelle obama's name -- make sure you vote. get people out to the polls. this is literally going down to the wire. >> further complicating things. in new jersey, they extended the voting deadline and you can vote online because of the storm damage. , wet of the votes ,w won't know when they are tallied. new jersey is not competitive. if it is close -- there may be a recount or legal challenges. i worry about a 50-50 country. people are really empassioned about the election. they may not see specificity in the next four years but i wonder, if it is close, people will get fired up. >> one side or the other will argue about legitimacy. it.oth sides -- you've seen and for seaside viewers -- there is the debate about if all the public polls are wrong, the think obama will win, the polls look better for him than mitt romney. a lot of conservatives say the polls are manipulated. i tried to find where the preponderance of the polls were wrong. this is not mean that you cannot have this unexplained and undetectable surge among the
the democratic national convention in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweeppe
-elected if it happens. >> definitely. next to michelle obama, the most popular democrat in the country. nothing beats having a former president to affirm you. especially a guy like bill clinton who is a walking advertisement for good governance. people believe him on the economy. >> why is he doing it? why is he so fervored about it? >> you know, i think part of it is that his legacy is in a sense tied to barack obama's. because a lot of what he's saying is let's go back to the clinton economic plans or the clinton rates on taxes. there's an affirmation of him in barack obama getting re-elected. and of course they did bring their two political powerhouse families together with the hiring of hillary clinton into the cabinet of barack obama. if you want to take the most cynical view of it, if hillary clinton wants to run in 2016, what better way to set that up. >> wait. we've got some huge loyalty markers that are going to be able to called in on this deal. >> absolutely. >> look, i think president clinton not only has he done the job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for -- on the down
weights as well. michelle obama tweeting four years ago our country elected @ barack obama. let's do it again. new hampshire governor john lynch asked who they would rather see kid rock at the monday romney event in new hampshire or bill clinton. is the tweet from junk lynch. @ joe trippi says that although both campaigns believe they can get over 300 electoral votes someone is right and someone is very wrong. well, said by joe trippi. go to fox news .com for complete online and social media coverage. we have that all for you on tuesday night. >>> we see so many polls in the lead up to a presidential election but just how accurate are they in predicting who wins and why do they vary so widely? check out the two national polls taken over pretty much the same time period. national journal has the president up by five points but the gallup polling company has governor romney up by five. exactly the opposite. we also have shown you the average of national polls and they all even out and it is a dead heat and for a little color just days before the 1980 election jimmy carter was up six po
urging people to get out to vote, but romney is doing the same. >> i remember michelle obama was telling college kids to register for absentee ballots. >> and at rallies, they had the application in you haven't registered to vote. >> beth, there's the a.p. report that florida democrats have filed a federal lawsuit asking for the early voting period to be extended. that ended yesterday after rick scott refused to extend. . does this have the potential to turn into another election battle like we saw in 2000 which means florida all over again? >> well, i think it depends on how close the race is on election night. if it is as close as we think it might be and it doesn't go obama's way on tuesday night, i think they will definitely see a lot of hack ls being raised by the democrats. the lines yesterday were as slong as five and six hours. and that's partly because they did cut back the number of days available for people to vote in person before election day. >> going from florida to ohio, might we have a similar problem with the provilgs votes if we don't wake up and know what's up? >> it'
been traveling on the plane together with president obama. first lady michelle obama joining the president on the stage. the first primarily win in iowa was a huge moment when he was battling against hillary clinton the first time around. so a lot of memories in iowa. joined now by wendall goler in chicago. what is the president doing on this last period throughout the course of these hours as waits for the big decision tonight? >> reporter: he made a tradition of playing basketball with staffers and friends on election day which has to be less stressful than sitting around nervously monitoring the exit polls. candidates don't usually campaign on election day. and the president is coming close. he and the first lady doing satellite tv interviews from chicago with radio and television stations elsewhere in the country. the first couple got in about 12:17, a little after midnight after campaigning in wisconsin, iowa and ohio. the third day in a row they have been in ohio which most campaigns see as a make or break state. the race is so close former press secretary robert gibbs
after michelle obama spoke. he looked sad at that point. i can understand why. he had adoring crowds four years ago. he has a tough time now scaring up a decent-sized crowd. i think a lot of democrats are not in to him or his solutions or a faith that he needs to get done for america. they are not crazy presidental tern tiff for voting for romney but they are not into obama at this time. >> leslie they talk about how obama's pollster told him early on that hope and change could not be recycled in a country the way so many americans are, the unemployment rate and so on and they decided to go negative, they decided they had to quote, kill mitt romney. the theory of th is that president obama didn't really love doing that. he loved the hope and change but he knew he had to do what he had to do to get reelected. he's trying to change the message in the last few days to get more positive but a number of americans are wondering what happened. >> thank you dr. larson. when you have over 10,000 people at a rally in ohio i wouldn't say they were begging people to come. i wish i could get ten
, into the personal worlds of the twitterverse. michelle obama tweeting this, four more years. that was at a campaign stop in davenport, iowa. and this, from mitt romney's body man. talking to overflow crowds in fairfax, virginia. and another from his body man. eric draper, take a look. so much more to see here on twitter. we'll look at it all morning, all day long here, george. >> that's a great shot. thank you. that was. that was fantastic. >>> other photos coming in right now. vice president joe biden voting in the state of delaware. there he is, walking into the polling place with his wife, dr. jill biden. and his son, dr. beau biden behind him. delaware a safe state for the president and joe biden. both candidates campaigning hard for women support. let's look at their prospects with our team of powerhouse women. nicolle wallace, donna brazile, who ran al gore's campaign, and cokie roberts. cokie, let me begin with you and put up other figures from our poll. it shows president obama leading among women, 53% to 45%. an eight-point lead right now. governor romney, winning with men. 50% to 45%. pre
been here once. we have seen a lot of, many visits from michelle obama. jill biden then work with the reds in colorado springs. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. >> bill clinton could be coming to your state. an official says bill clinton is scheduled to campaign for the president today. in colorado. the president was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: and we expect we will see, pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, both candidates later in the week. governor mitt romney was here last week in the rally at but rocks that drew 9000 people. thousands were turned away. the following day, president obama held a rally in denver and drew crowds of up to 16,000. the governor this because deserve an amphitheater that has the capacity of 18,000. the president and his campaign were looking to go to boulder to hold a rally. they are try to turn out a lot of voters for the optics. >> these are great stories about real people in american history. very important moment in american history we do not know about three the fir
, iowa. joined by bruce springsteen and first lady michelle obama. this is what the scene looks like in downtown des moines. governor romney will be joined by his wife for his campaign appearances in what was scheduled to be the final event but he would not be on the campaign trail tomorrow at the cleveland and pittsburgh. rock hill, south carolina. dale, republican line. caller: hi. i just want to scratch -- congratulate president romney. my daughter graduated from college. she was 4.0 in business administration. she cannot find a job. if the people would just look at mbers and the record, i do not know how anyone can talk about putting barack obama back in there for a second term. people say governor romney has light -- has lied, i followed this race from the debates when he was a candidate. he stuck to his guns. one thing that really swayed me was when his wife said that when he was talking about running and she looked at him and said, can he still fix this? and he said yes. i think governor romney is a winner. there is nothing wrong with being rich. i think he has helped a lot of
and we were poor, let me tell you about our beginning and michelle obama saying we couldn't afford anything, ann romney saying i remember the first business. we didn't know that it would even succeed. and then they did all the television shows and there were certain shows, for example, like "the view" in which mitt romney did not want to appear because he said that he thought the participants were sharp-tongued. i don't know where he got that impression but mrs. romney did come on and both of them have been to the battleground states many times since the convention campaign. mrs. obama going 21 times, mrs. romney, 27 times they went to nevada, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia and new hampshire and these are the ones who have been the surrogates with mrs. obama, no, my husband is not a cold fish. we have dinner every night with the kids. you should know him. you should see that smile. i love him. you should love him. mrs. romney who is very close to her husband in the strategy, she plays a bigger role than just being the wife of, she is the one who said, he is not a stiff m
michelle obama and other surrogates have been there, but it is quite remarkable it would be this close, unless there had been a lot going on under the surface and in mobilizing the obama voters that maybe we haven't been able to see. >> and by all other reports, gwen, it was a big republican year. the republicans returned the governorship. the democratic governor did not seek reelection. the republicans won the governorship. i think the republicans expected to pick up a couple of house see the, and yet this presidential race-- >> there had been a possibility and again we don't know who the win the election, there had been the thought that president obama would win the electoral and not the popular but with the closeness in state like north carolina, that seems less likely. >> woodruff: i'd like to see the colorado numbers if we can get those up in a few minute. we haven't seen where things stand right now. ray suarez in chicago with the obama campaign. ray displai you know, gwen, people have been filing in here all night and starting to pay very close attention to the returns coming in
, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however our poll, the nbc marist poll shows the president leading by two. we're all scratching our heads here. what do you make of these polls and the difference between them? >> well, it's obvious that both campaigns still view it as a battle ground. we can see that by where they put their money. the obama campaign made a renewed effort, i guess you could call it a final push in florida by buying up more ad time there. i
. that is a tweet from michelle obama. that was from last night. let's move on to couple live events we'll need to get to today. wisconsin is a swing state but ohio is a swing state as well. jon: ohio is we've nerd huff about it but another swing state could play a major role what happens in the race for the white house. we'll tell you about that.

there and you see michelle obama and dr. jill biden greeting each other as well. what struck most of us in the news room about this picture was this really doesn't seem to be a scene of jubilation. it seems to be a scene of relief, heavy sigh, if you will, felt in that room at the moment that the president understood he had won four more years at the whitehouse. let's go back to mccormick place as we are with the crowd there waiting for the president to step out. bob. >> well, you know, i've covered a lot of campaigns in my time and it's always more fun to be with the winner than it is with the loser. there's nothing quite as sad or as sad a places to be, to be in the campaign headquarters of the guy that lost. it's just tough on everybody. >> i think that's why you saw the whitehouse particularly chose that picture. they did not want to look like they are spiking the ball. and even gave axelrod an interview they did not want to appear they were celebrating too early and not tush sor to be sof gracious. having fought campaigns before people know what it's like to be on the losing side.
't use the president there but they sent michelle obama there a lot, she was just there on monday and bill clinton was in north carolina as well. >> we must stress it's early in the evening and we're operating on early figures. but this could be the first real surprise of the evening, if the trend continues down there. >> pelley: the strength of the president in north carolina. >> yes. >> pelley: thank you, bob. let's have a quick look at the presidential race map as it stands just now. the red states we are projecting for mitt romney, the blue states for president obama. but as bob just said, it is early yet. cbs news coverage of election night, 2012, will continue? just a moment. >> pelley: breaking news, cbs news projects that president obama will carry the state of new jersey. and its 14 electoral votes. with that let's have a look at the presidential race map. mr. obama has 78 electoral votes, mitt romney 82 electoral votes at this early stage on the way to 270 needed to win. anthony mason has been looking at some of the swing states where we don't have enough information
speaker out there on the campaign trail. >> she is and what strikes me about michelle obama and ann romney is not doing feel-good speeches. they're talking about policy and, you know, they carry a dagger as i like to say, wrapped in velvet which is what she was doing talking about the auto bailout and mitt romney. so, very political speech. >> very passionate. >> passionate speech. she's become an enormous asset for this president. not only for him personally but her stature has grown over time. i think it grew in part because she warmed up and she also had a softer side. more feminine side. i was a little surprised by the tone of the speech but listen. >> tough. >> it's a last 24 hours. a lot of passions. they're tired. i think all is forgiven. >> gloria, romney making a surprise trip tomorrow to pennsylvania, another one to ohio. do you think it makes a difference? >> well, in talking to people on his staff, they say it will. first of all, no early voting in pennsylvania. so they're not up against the machine there. secondly, i was talking to someone on his staff saying to me today that
parker? did you get an e-mail from michelle obama calling you friend? did you get a banner ad for a campaign when you were surfing the net? turns out you were targeted for these things by a sophisticated campaign technique called data mining, an effort to find out who individual voters are and how they'll respond to campaign messages. >> the goal is to come up with an individual level statistical prediction of your likelihood of supporting their candidate or of casting a ballot at all. >> then they target you for ads. the obama campaign is widely believed to have had the most sophisticated data mining operation central to his election victory this year. getting people out to vote who might not have otherwise. "time" magazine profiled it with a picture of the data crunchers working in a room called the cave. analysts say campaigns do this by going to commercial data warehouses which compile information on your buying habits, like what magazines you subscribe to. maybe information on where and how you like to travel. campaigns cross reference that with demographic information li
